The Freeman Center at 20: An Exploration of The Jewish "Home Away From Home" at Duke
The Freeman Center for Jewish Life has been the central address for Jewish life on Duke's campus for 20 years. Join us for Shabbat lunch and a lively conversation about how the Freeman Center came to be, what the center's unique architecture provides to the Jewish community, and thoughts about the future of the space. Our conversation will also place the Freeman Center's design in context with that of other Jewish student centers on American college campuses, their historical background, and contemporary challenges faced by their communities.

Featuring Dr. Judith Ruderman, retired Vice Provost for Academic and Administrative Services at Duke University, Architect Jeremy Kargon, P'21, Associate Professor at Morgan State University's School of Architecture and Planning, and Heath Freeman, '02, Chair of the Jewish Life at Duke Advisory Board.
